In Artic Waters By Laura Crawford and Illustrated by Ben Hodson


In Artic Waters is a great educational and fun way to educate children about the Arctic! The text is wonderful and the illustrations are amazing! I recommend this one for children ages 3+. 

“This is the ice that floats in the Artic Waters…”

Join in the rhythmic, building fun of Arctic animals as they play and chase each other around “the ice that floats in the Arctic waters.” Follow polar bears, walruses, seals, narwhals, and beluga whales in this rhythmic, cumulative prose good for early readers. What could possibly happen to interrupt and spoil their fun?!  My son and I were happy to see a happy ending!

The “For Creative Minds” educational section helps children learn how these animals live in cold, icy Arctic Region and was verified for scientific accuracy by Kate M. Wynne, Marine Mammal Specialist at the University of Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program, as well as Riley Woodford and Sue Steinacher of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Wildlife Conservation.

Children, parents, and teachers will enjoy the information and fun facts about:

What and where is the Arctic?

Animal adaptations to survive the harsh, cold environment

A mix-and-match animal craft

Fun Facts and coloring activities to learn about polar bears, walruses, seals, narwhals and belugas.
